Tampa Bay Rays vs Baltimore Orioles Prediction

I’m on the Orioles here. I like what I’ve seen from Cole Irvin in recent starts, and while the Rays have had some decent success against lefties as of late, it’s hard for me to really ignore how well the Orioles are playing as a unit and how they’ve crushed righties in their own right over the last couple of weeks. I think the Orioles get it done on the road here so give me Baltimore.
